During the travel usually we get tired by journey. Because of changes climate, place and adjust with new type of food, water, air of new places make some trouble in the body. Sometime we get sick also. So during traveling-
# Take adjustable cloths for the new places weather,
# Take new type of food small amount, don’t eat those food which is not testable to you.
# Take first aid with you.
# Keep common medicine with you which you take before.
# Take necessary rest and sleep to get relaxed.

That is a lot of good information. I would recommend that you not only keep your medicine with you, but a list of your Drs and with your medical conditions. You need to make sure that if something happens to you that they know what to treat you for.

First Aid is a MUST-HAVE when you travel. Especially if you know that you can get sick easily. You should have first aid in your bag.
Aside from those suggestions you gave, I think you should consult your doctor before traveling. Check your condition if you are healthy enough to travel around. Research on the weather of your destination. From hot to cold weather or vice versa can really lead you to certain sicknesses. With that, bring clothes that are suitable for the weather.

Remember, no matter how beautiful your destination is but your health is poor and weak, you wouldn't be able to enjoy the trip completely.
